Apple Inc. (AAPL) Bringing Facial Recognition To iPad

Harnessing The Power Of Your iPhone- Useful Tips You May Not Know

Apple Inc.is working on a redesigned, high-end iPad for as early as 2018 that incorporates key iPhone X features such as slimmer edges and facial recognition, according to people familiar with the matter. Production problems and supply constraints with its OLED panels mean they'll be limited to the iPhone through 2018. These features will replace the iPad home button that has originally come with a fingerprint scanner since release in early 2014.

Apple reported during its earnings call last week that iPad revenue rose 14% to $4.8 billion in the fiscal fourth quarter, with an 11% increase in the number of units sold.

Getting rid of the physical home button will also see Apple "noticeably reduce" the size of the bezels surrounding the iPad's display, the anonymous sources said. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment. This is why Apple is looking for ways to make the product popular again.


Apple is no doubt hoping the changes will reignite iPad sales, which have lagged in recent years amid a glut of tablets from competitors in the marketplace.

Now the iPad may be having something of a comeback. Now such a framework can be seen only in iPad Pro 10.5-inch version. Of course new developments related to tablet released this year is the revolutionary iPhone X. Hence, the screen will be more immersive. While the device will have full-screen design, it is not likely to be equipped with an OLED display for delivering more vivid colors and sharper clarity. It is a security feature which was introduced with the launch of iPhone X. This feature recognises the face of the user and then unlocks the device. The wireless charging feature would also be a nice way to offer a complete range of Apple devices that can all be charged on a single surface at night, avoiding plugging in more devices.

But now we're hearing reports that Apple is considering bringing Face ID, which is currently only available in its iPhone X, to the professionally focused iPad Pro.
